This year we are planning to publish a companion 
proceedings for the accepted papers in workshops. This 
companion proceedings will be published by ACM Digital 
Library (non-archival form) and will be searchable in the 
ACM Digital Library. The accepted workshops’ organizers 
will tell the workshop chairs whether they would like 
their workshops’ accepted papers to be part of the 
companion proceedings. In the case, if the workshop’s 
organizers decide to go for the companion proceedings, 
they have to work according to these guidelines:

* Manage a PC and reviewing system for the submitted paper
* It is up to organizers to decide which submission system 
(e.g., easychair) they like to use for the submissions
* Our recommendation date for workshop paper submission is 
September 30 (However, organizers can make an earlier 
deadline as per their convenience) and notification date 
is October 07 (hard deadline!). We will provide workshop 
organizers a special code for early bid registration that 
they will give in the accepted notification to authors.
* The workshop organizers will provide the meta-data of 
all the accepted papers to workshop chairs on October 07 
(hard deadline!).
* The page limit for workshop papers is up to 7 pages 
including references using the SIGCHI Extended Abstracts 
publication format 
(http://www.sigchi.org/publications/chipubform/sigchi-extended-abstracts-word-template/view).
* The final camera ready deadline for workshop papers is 
not set yet, but will be notified to the accepted 
workshops’ organizers as we receive the confirmation from 
the ACM.
